A father of three young children was shot dead after confronting two robbers who attacked him as he closed his shop for the night, police said.

Pragaret Singh, 35, was blasted in the chest and abdomen as he left Manchester Food Traders in Openshaw, Greater Manchester Police said.

Detectives said Mr Singh, known to family and friends as Charlie, is believed to have grappled with at least one of the men before being shot. Mr Singh died later in hospital.

Detective Superintendent Jon Chadwick said: “Although this investigation remains in its infancy, at this stage we believe Charlie’s death was the result of simply trying to protect his business from armed robbers, during which he was shot at least twice.”

The robbers are believed to have made off with a “large amount of money”.
